Small is the tongue but In the mouth of a wrong person It can become a weapon of destruction! How much slander/gossip is your tongue guilty of? We came with nothing & will leave with nothing
That which we have sown through our words and deeds. How gross are the sins of slander? Do you know its weight in comparison? We wear halos on our heads & we seem to have grown wings becoming immaculate.. As if we ourselves are without sin, So pure... that we have the audacity to use our mouths as pistols, our tongues as bullets!
Please... Don't always believe what you hear or read about... It may or may not be the truth! Better to be seekers after Truth! The rewards for injustices are not immediate but Be assured we will have to shoulder the burden of our sins..
Who are we? Who am I? To be always ready to sit in judgement... To lie, to slander, to gossip!!! The only guard we have over our tongue Is Self-control!
How much self-control do you have?
Are you aware?
Awareness is awareness is Awareness!!!
About the author – At 70, Mary Jeanne, or MJ for short, has experienced much unwarranted gossip and slander. Believing firmly in the Laws of Karma, she avoids becoming bitter or retaliating in kind.
“As we sow so too shall we reap.”
She was raped in her teens and, when she called for help from the one who professed to love her, was turned away. Years later he apologized – but what was there to forgive? She had moved on, grown stronger spiritually and become the person she is today – one who abhors lies.
“We are called to be seekers of truth and builders in society. It is so much easier to destroy. Would you rather build or destroy? To love means having to overlook such betrayals specially by those who profess to love us.” – Mary Jeanne
